Study Guidelines

Please note the following:

  • Session details for your study are required two weeks before your scheduled start date.

  • All studies need IRB approval prior to the scheduled start date.
  • If you want to use the focus group rooms that MUST be stated in the request.

  • The lab provides two RAs for each session. If your study requires more please make arrangements to provide your own RAs.
